Pretty great, but as I expected of myself, I didn't apply any of it.


Este es un curso verdaderamente funcional, con una gran variedad de técnicas y dinámicas eficaces todas que me permiten en todo momento organizar mi sistema de aprendizaje y retenerlo a largo plazo. Lo recomiendo ampliamente.

I think this is a fantastic course. It was helpful to get insight into my learning process and tips for improving my learning curve, offered material I can share with my ESL language students, and offered ideas on how to optimally present learning materials I develop for my program. Simple but detailed presentation. Clear illustrations and great metaphors that help you grasp concepts, and quizzes to test that you really have grasp the material. Top.
